Thats exactly why I didn't use it either, I had no idea you could.
All the sample apps using Gapi (that I used right after it came out) use the CreateWindow() function.

I'll take a look at it and rewrite it to use that function a soon as I get a chance.

FYI, My first attempt at rewriting this had the full screen blacked out, however it would never refresh the menu bar and clock when I exited MameCE3. I always assumed it was becuase we were blitting to the screen directly and the OS didn't know that we overwrote the menubar. I also couldn't figure out how to tell it that I had written on the menu at the time.
Also, (becuase of this)my blit routine in display.c does not reblit the menubar. It start its blit at the screenframe+=26.

Perhaps we will get a few more frames per second after this change :)
